Pokemon Go Global Challenge: All challenge tasks completed – rewards incoming

Paul Cot

Niantic have announced the 2019 Pokemon Go Global Challenge, which will see trainers from across the world work alongside those attending the Pokemon Go Fest events this summer, in an attempt to earn as many rewards as possible.

Update: Pokemon Go Fest Yokohama has now finished and trainers successfully completed each of their challenge tasks. This means all challenges were completed across each Go Fest event.

The Yokohama bonuses will be available from August 13 1pm PDT to August 20 1pm PDT and are as follows:

  • 3x catch stardust
  • Guaranteed 3,000 stardust per raid
  • 3x hatch stardust
  • 1 hour star pieces

In addition to this, as all challenges were completed, special bonus Suicune raid battles will be available on August 17, 4pm local time – and yes, if you’re lucky you could get a shiny!

The event will be broken down into three separate challenges, each lasting the duration of the three upcoming Pokemon Go Fest events which are taking place in June, July and August. They are as follows:

  • Pokemon Go Fest Chicago, USA
  • Pokemon Go Fest Dortmund, Germany
  • Pokemon Go Fest Yokohama, Japan

Unlocked rewards are solely dependent on how many research tasks are completed, with attendees of the events having to complete a fraction that global trainers do.

Teams come together

The narrative is all Pokemon Go trainers will put team allegiances aside and come together to complete the vast number of tasks required. In reality this is the best way to make sure all Pokemon Go players can participate during each event.

Last year’s event, which was very similar, saw trainers come together and complete all of the tasks. The same will be expected despite there being far more challenges to complete.

Global Challenge research tasks

The nature of the research tasks are yet to be revealed although they will likely be the usual throw three curve balls in a row or catch 10 type of x Pokemon variety.

Rewards won’t depend on specific tasks but the number of them that are completed. If trainers at both the events and around the globe hit the targets, the rewards will be made available. Those targets and rewards are as follows for each event.
